OK it seems the issue is with the OS itself but being a Dell installation you won't have the repair option on the disk. Can you borrow a XP disk of the same version you are using..Home, Media or Pro with the correct SP you have installed?

Yeah but your disk is a Dell installation correct?
If so that will not work and you need a OEM installation disk.

Are you still having problems with your issue?
It has been 15 days since your last response and I was wondering if the issue has been resolved?
If so can you explain how it was resolved so others may be able to fix it if they have the same issue.
If not please let us know and we can continue with helping you to resolve the issue.
